Note to Kansas City Ragtime and Beyond members and followers:
We will try to inform you of coming virtual music events. Please understand that the links and information to get to this music is generally passed through various communications and there is some risk of error. If you have a problem, let me know.
Unfortunately, the news of the next Syncopated Saturday came to us on short notice. We knew the event was coming and had been delayed once. We hope you can fit it into your calendar.
There is a lot more coming, but we do not know the details for most. We will try to keep you informed.

In support of artists challenged by COVID performance cancellations, the Scott Joplin Ragtime Foundation (SJIRF) presents the Second Edition of Syncopated Saturday Night. Carl Sonny Leyland, Frederick Hodges, and host Bryan Wright welcome you into their homes for Ragtime and other genres influenced by Ragtime.
While the SJIRF has provided each performer with a stipend for their time and talent, you can provide additional 'tips' by donating NOW at our website https://www.scottjoplin.org/donate.html.
100% of donations go to event performers. You can also mail a donation to the: Scott Joplin Ragtime Foundation PO Box 1244 Sedalia, MO 65302

Quoting the “West Coast Ragtimer” The Journal of the West Coast Ragtime Society
We are now working on taking a live, in-person festival into virtual global territory, an exciting new direction for us. Virtual knows none of the geographical limits that a streamed festival can have. It’s not just out of the box—it can be out of this world. With an international aspect, new faces can join us. But, we’re not abandoning the familiar … So, save November 20-22 for a weekend of lively ragtime coming your way.
November 20-22, 2020
